(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The widow of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat said yesterday she was still convinced he was poisoned, after French experts ruled out the theory that he had been assassinated.

"I'm still completely convinced that the martyr Arafat did not die a natural death, and I will keep trying to get to the truth," Suha Arafat (pictured), said. "I'm shocked by (the results of) the French medical report, which I only received four pages of to look at," she said.

The French experts' findings, released Tuesday, differed significantly from those of Swiss scientists, who said last month their research offered some support for the suggestion Arafat was killed by polonium poisoning. "The Swiss report was a detailed, 107-page, professional report talking in detail about the presence of polonium on Arafat's clothes," Suha said. "How the French haven't found anything is completely illogical," she added. A source close to the French investigation said on Tuesday it "rules out the poisoning theory and goes in the sense of a natural death".
